A better nutrition for a better life

The Second International Conference on Nutrition (Icn2) is an inter-governmental meeting jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (Fao) and the World Health Organization (Who), in cooperation with the High Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis (Hltf), Ifad, ifpri, Unesco, Unicef, World Bank, Wfp and the Wto. It will be held at Fao Headquarters, in Rome, 19-21 November 2014.

It will propose a flexible policy framework to address today’s major nutrition challenges and identify priorities for enhanced international cooperation on nutrition. The conference will bring together senior national policymakers from agriculture, health and other relevant ministries and agencies, with leaders of United Nations agencies and other intergovernmental organizations and civil society, including non-governmental organizations, researchers, the private sector and consumers.

The conference will review progress made towards improving nutrition since the 1992 Icn, reflect on nutrition problems that remain, as well as on the new challenges and opportunities for improving nutrition presented by changes in the global economy, in food systems, by advances in science and technology, and identify policy options for improving nutrition.
